    Proceeds from the evening will be donated to the local charity Food Bank Plus, which combines the Shrewsbury Food Bank, Barnabas Money Advice and 360 Platform for Life in one service that goes beyond just meeting the basic need to eat but offers help and encouragement to people as they take steps forward into a better future.

    Pearl of Africa Children's Choir Concert (Maidment Building)

    The Pearl of Africa Children's Choir Ltd, comprising 20 children aged 7 to 16 years from the Molly and Paul Childcare Foundation schools and orphanages in Uganda, will be performing traditional music and dance in African national costume in venues across the region. The talented young singers, dancers and drummers come from a background of hardship and many are orphans as a result of the great killer diseases of their homeland- HIV/AIDS and malaria.

    Pearl of Africa Child Care is a UK based charity whose main activity is raising funds for the seven schools and homes run by the Molly and Paul Child Care Foundation - a Ugandan non-government organisation which provides education, food, shelter and healthcare to orphaned and destitute children in the Kampala and Masaka district.  The charity now runs a group of eight schools and a clinic, providing education, food, shelter and healthcare for nearly 3,000 youngsters.   As part of their nationwide tour, the Pearl of Africa Children’s Choir bring their high octane mix of traditional African music, dance, drumming in national costume to the Maidment Auditorium.

    It’s an entertaining and moving performance we’re excited to welcome back to the school, and all are invited to join us for what promises to be a fabulous evening of entertainment.

    FREE admission with a retiring collection; donations to Pearl of Africa Child Care will help to raise much needed funds for the schools and homes in Uganda.

    Reserve your tickets online via www.ticketsource.co.uk/shrewsburyschool or tel. 01743 280812.
